Christian Pulisic admitted that Chelsea had to suffer in parts during their 2-0 FA Cup quarter-final victory against Sheffield United on Sunday afternoon.


Thomas Tuchel’s side were far from their best at stamford bridge, but managed to book a place their spot in the semi-finals when an own goal by Oliver Norwood in the first half put Chelsea on track before substitute Hakim Ziyech sealed the tie in injury time.

Pulisic came back on the sidelines and played 83 minutes, producing a brighter display and was his biggest threat going forward. He should have scored a goal in the first half, but squandered his excellent shot at point blank range

Speaking to BBC post-match, he said: “Yes, they didn’t make it easy on us. We knew they had quality and we had to suffer a bit in the second half but it was another clean sheet and a good performance.

“Yes, we knew it was going to be uncomfortable with a bit of pressure but we had to be strong and defend so in the end I was happy.

“Yes, they are a good defensive side as well. I had a few chances myself that I could have done better with but in the end we got the two goals. It was a good result.


” We have a confident bunch of guys and when you go on a streak like this you feel good, you feel like we can beat anyone, so it is a good feeling.”
